Sam Houston State University

Join the Recreation Movement

Have you been neglecting your fitness since COVID? Are you suffering from the Quarantine 15? Over the summer, thousands of students, faculty, and staff across the country, including SHSU, logged millions of active minutes to support their schools, competing to see whose campus is the most active. SHSU finished in 14th place out of over 110 schools this summer, and we want to continue this fantastic trend!

From October 1–November 30, log your active minutes on to earn prizes such as t-shirts, water bottles, and backpacks, besides those provided by the national program.  All you need to do is login with your SHSU email address. You will gain access to hundreds of live and on-demand classes from different universities around the country each day. Log your active minutes by taking some of our group fitness classes, climbing the rock wall, walking your pet, or doing your own workouts. All activity counts so log your activity now.  The incentive program is free to all members of the SHSU community.


Bronze Level–Complete 450 minutes of activity (roughly 30 minutes a day for 2 weeks) and take part in nutrition education macro counting—Rec Sports lunch bag

Silver Level–900 minutes by October 31 (average 30 minutes a day for 1 month)–Rec Sports t-shirt

Gold Level–1800 minutes by November 30 (average 30 minutes a day for 2 months)–Rtic water bottle

The Top 10 participants = Under Armour backpack

Health professionals recommend 150 minutes a week of activity or exercise, or 20-30 minutes a day, but people’s quarantine-adjusted routines have forced them to find creative ways to remain active while being mindful of the risk of exposure. To maintain these recommended active minutes, Rec Sports has developed this incentive program to encourage the SHSU community to stay active and healthy. 

Be sure to follow SHSU Rec Sports on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, and download the SHSU Rec Sports app for notifications about contests, prize opportunities, or to get encouragement about the Rec Movement program.

Let’s make fitness and health a priority for the rest of the semester. Join us today!
